Designer Spotlight: Meagan Ollari

Back in October I attended the Simply Stylist event in NYC. At the ‘Brand Experience’ portion of the day, you were able to mix & mingle with the other attendees and that is where I met Meagan Ollari. Meagan was wearing this collar that instantly caught my eye. I knew I had to compliment her on it and that is how I found out that Meagan actually designed and created the collar herself! We spoke for a while and I got to hear all about her line, Ollari, and check out her Lookbook.

Designer Meagan Ollari

———————————————————————————————————–

About the Designer:

Born and raised in New Jersey, Meagan Ollari discovered her passion for design at the age of 7, which she expressed through her love of sewing and illustration. “Meagan always seemed to be the lead singer or dancer and was never one interested in a backup role. At the age of 7, she started sketching clothing designs and asked Santa to bring her a sewing machine. That Christmas, Santa complied and soon Meagan was making clothes for herself and her dolls. She even made her own first business card for her fashion business. At that point, I knew she had a very bright future ahead of her”

-Cynthia, Meagan’s Mother

After high school, Meagan set out to formally study Fashion Design at County College of Morris in New Jersey and later transferred to the Academy of Art University in San Francisco, CA.

In 2009, she landed an internship at a multi-line women’s contemporary showroom in Manhattan’s Fashion District where she developed industry knowledge and hands-on design experience. Meagan has designed for junior contemporary brands such as Urban Outfitters, Urban Outfitters UK, Anthropologie, Guess, American Rag, Delia*s and Forever 21, among others…

In January 2014, Meagan decided it was time to share her gift and lifelong dream with the world. Meagan birthed Ollari the brand, which bears her namesake. Utilizing luxurious fabrications and novelty beadwork, Ollari targets a more refined contemporary woman.

Ollari made it’s official debut at New York Fashion Week on September 6, 2014.

Here are some shots from the runway:

I love Ollari’s SS2015 Womenswear Collection, Dragonfly Oasis. The collection is inspired by an eclectic blend of Twiggy’s 1960’s MOD era & the deep-rooted cultural aesthetic of African tribes. The cutouts, necklines, beading and the mix of colors and patterns really makes this collection stand out. Here’s a look at some of the collection from the official lookbook.

From the short amount of time that I have gotten to know Meagan, I can tell how dedicated she is to her work. She eats, breathes & sleeps…. Ollari.

Make sure to follow her journey!

Get The Look: Jennifer Lopez at the Golden Globes

It’s undeniable that Jennifer Lopez looked absolutely stunning at the Golden Globes this past Sunday. Dressed in a plunging Zuhair Murad dress, her hair & makeup completed the flawless look. Here is a break down of her look, step by step, so you can be Red Carpet ready from the comfort of your own home with L’Oreal Paris.

HAIRSTYLIST: Lorenzo Martin

INSPIRATION: When Lorenzo saw Jennifer’s Zuhair Murad 1960’s inspired dress he immediately thought of Sharon Tate, who became his inspiration for the look.

 STEP 1: Lorenzo washed Jennifer’s hair with L’Oréal Paris Advanced Haircare – Volume Filler Thickening Shampoo and Conditioner ($4.99 each). On damp hair, he sprayed L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle Boost It High Lift Creation Spray ($4.99).

STEP 2: To amp up volume, Lorenzo applied L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle Boost It Volume Inject Mousse ($4.99) on damp hair and began to blow dry with a round brush.

STEP 3: Lorenzo set Jennifer’s hair in 1” hot rollers for about an hour. Jennifer then flipped her hair over and Lorenzo brushed her hair out

STEP 4: He began to tease the crown while spraying L’Oréal Paris Elnett Satin Hairspray Extra Strong Hold ($14.99).

STEP 5: To complete the look, Lorenzo used a comb to split a front portion of Jennifer’s hair down the middle and secured behind her ears with a few bobby pins.

Tip: To get a similar hair color as Jennifer’s use L’Oreal Paris Mousse Absolue in Pure Light Brown.

PC: Jason Merritt

MANICURIST: Tom Bachik, L’Oréal Paris Global Nail Artist

INSPIRATION: The fierceness of Jennifer’s Zuhair Murad dress inspired Tom to create long, pointed nails to go with the low neckline. The hidden detail and bold color choice complemented the look.

STEP 1: To prep the nails, Tom started by adding a few drops of the L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Glow Renewal Facial Oil ($24.99) and rubbed into the cuticles

STEP 2: To create a classic and elegant look, Tom chose a rose gold, metallic shade – L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Nail in Charmed, I’m Sure ($5.99) 

STEP 3: To complete the look, Tom added a little surprise on the underside of the nail by applying Swarovski crystals, a larger one closer to the nail bed and another on the tip

MAKEUP ARTIST: Mary Phillips

INSPIRATION: Jennifer is always a focal point on the red carpet, and Mary really likes to go all out for big award shows like the Golden Globes. She wanted old school Hollywood glamour and va-va-voom, drawing inspiration from Italian bombshells like Sophia Loren: sexy, fearless, timeless, bold, striking.

STEP 1: Mary applied L’Oréal Paris RevitaLift Moisture Blur ($24.99) to the entire face as a primer for smooth texture

STEP 2: Next, she covered the face with L’Oréal Paris Visible Lift Blur Foundation ($14.99) in Honey Beige. She added drops of a luminous highlighter, Giorgio Armani Fluid Sheer ($62) for definition and sheen.

STEP 3: For eyes, Mary used  L’Oréal Paris Infallible Smokissime Powder Eyeliner in Brown Smoke ($9.99) as a simple one-step to a smokey look.  She accented using taupe, gold and brown hues of Infallible Eye Shadow Crayon ($7.99)

STEP 4: She turned to L’Oreal Paris Brow Stylist Sculptor in Brunette ($8.99) subtly fashioning brows to frame the face without being too overbearing

STEP 5: For lips, Mary used Giorgio Armani Smooth Silk Lip Pencil #1 ($30)– the nude of nudes – to line the lips, and finished with L’Oreal Paris Infallible Pro Lip Color in Neverending Nutmeg ($12.99).  The pale hue worked perfectly against her metallic dress

STEP 6: She finished off with L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro Spray & Set Makeup Extender Setting Spray ($16.99), which kept Jennifer’s makeup looking fresh for hours following application
